Bonk Hard Racing, LLC is excited to announce that the ninth running of the Berryman Adventure will be taking place the weekend of September 26th. The Berryman Adventure - presented by The North Face - always draws top teams from across the U.S. because of its true backwoods setting and top competition.

The race is set in the rugged and beautiful Mark Twain National Forest and Ozark National Scenic Riverways of southern Missouri. The 2009 course is completely new and will offer racers miles and miles of single track trails, beautiful crystal-clear rivers and steep, rugged terrain; the Berryman Adventure is what adventure racing is all about.

The race will offer two courses: a 12-Hour course and a 36-Hour course. Both courses will once again reinforce the motto of the race, "a real ass kicker", but the 36-Hour course will continue to be one of the toughest non-expedition races in the United States. Teams must be extremely proficient with a map and compass and should not show up unprepared. The 36-Hour course is the closest you can get to a mini-expedition race and teams should not take it lightly.

This race is by-far one of the cheapest races in the U.S., with a $170 early registration fee for 36-Hours of true backwoods adventure racing. With prizes like North Face tents and sleeping bags, Salomon XT Wing trail shoes, great gear from Columbia Sportswear, Numa Sport Optic sunglasses, Kuat bike racks and a TON of great prizes from regional outdoor stores like Alpine Shop, you will not want to miss this year's race!

This Berryman Adventure 36-Hour 4-Person Coed Elite division will once again be a Regional Qualifier for the USARA National Championships race as well as a part of the Checkpoint Tracker Adventure Racing Series presented by Inov-8.

Get your team together today and come see for yourself why the Berryman Adventure has the slogan "a real ass kicker!"
